Why do you think that there's something wrong? I don't see any error
messages so far. Does it keep running in foreground (it should with -b)
or does it return to the command prompt immediately?

If apcupsd keeps running and you have your serial cable connected try
to unplug the power from your UPS and check if you get any messages.
